FELONY DWAI-DRUGS AND REFUSAL DISMISSED

Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome.

Daniel Jackson successfully defended his client that was charged with a felony of Driving While Ability Impaired by Drugs and Refusal to Submit to a Chemical Test. Mr. Jackson initially defended his client's alleged Refusal to Submit to a Chemical Test before a Department of Motor Vehicle Administrative Law Judge (ALJ). Mr. Jackson exposed the arresting officer's failure to adequately advise his client of his refusal warnings. As a result, the ALJ dismissed the Refusal. Based in part on the successful defense of his client's Refusal charge, Mr. Jackson was able to persuade the District Attorney's office of other deficiencies in the prosecution's case. As a result, the District Attorney dismissed the felony complaint of Driving While Ability Impaired by Drugs without the necessity of trial.

Mr. Jackson's client faced a potential State Prison Sentence and a Lifetime Revocation of his Driver's License had he been convicted of Driving While Impaired by Drugs and Refusal to Submit to a Chemical Test.
